A beginner pie made with fresh apples and a crumble topping.
Make the crust and place in a 9 ½ inch pie plate. Refrigerate or freeze while preparing pie ingredients, or overnight. See recipe notes for pastry recipe.
Mix the flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl. Cut the butter into the sugar mixture with hands or using a pastry cutter. A food processor may also be used, only pulse for a few seconds, do not over mix! Set aside. If the kitchen is warm, place the crumble mixture in the refrigerator.
